What is involved in a Laser skin treatment
Patients have a consultation (lasting around 30 minutes) with an experienced medical aesthetician.
During your consultation you will be given an indication of the number of treatments required and at this stage may require a patch test. Subsequent treatments will take place every 6-8 weeks.
What are the risks or potential side effects of a Laser skin treatment
All laser procedures involve risks however through using a patch test and as the procedure is performed by an experienced medical aesthetician, we minimise the risks involved. Side-effects can include reddening of the skin, swelling of the area, blisters and in some cases bruising.
What aftercare is required for a Laser skin treatment
The experienced medical aesthetician will give specific advice on after care following your laser procedure but in general you should avoid sun exposure
What is the cost of a Laser skin treatment
There is an initial consultation charge which includes a patch test. We are unable to invoice private health insurers directly for this treatment and patients must pay in full on the day of their treatment.
